Description Zafer Kiziltoprak 2006-09-14 02:33:37 EDT
Description of problem:
when upgraging from FC4 to FC5 or installing fresh FC5, the installation always
breaks down after managing the partitions. A window opens and its says somthing
like that (i cut some part of it): 
An unhandled exception has occured. This is most likely a bug...
File "/us/lib/anaconda/upgrade.py", line 147 in mountRootPartition 
    oldffset.mountFileSystems(instPath, readOnly=readOnly)

File "/us/lib/anaconda/fsset.py", line 1637 in mountFileSystems
    entry.mount(instPath, readOnly=readOnly)

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/ffset.py", line 1840 in mount

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/ffset.py", line 1051 in mount 
    raise SystemError(errNum, errMsg)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'errNum' referenced before assignment. 

And this goes on with the list of rpm packages. 

I thought that it was a DVD hardware problem(reading) i changed my DVD with a
working one. And same thing happened.
